New - incredible mtb trails in northern MI

Please see the attached link for GREAT new mountain biking opportunities in northern Michigan. I've just started exploring this extensive trail system, and find it hard to express just how incredibly cool it is.

I plan on going to a trail building party there this sunday and then checking it out after that.

I also have heard good things about it.

My favorite route is still listed as 'under construction' & not yet shown on the nice laminated maps that are posted along the trail. Bike & foot traffic IS officially encouraged to help break in the trail. I'm kind of a wimp, so I take a route that's about 90% downhill. I access the trail system from Vandermark Road at 44.98846N 85.24120W and head west on a 2-track to hook up with the trail system at 44.99143N 85.24335W where you head south (left). Follow the trail to an intersection a 44.98818N 85.24516W where you take a right. This will take you to what the official trail map lists as Waypoint 9 at 44.98845N 85.25108W. I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I do. If I get REALLY ambitious I may record the whole trail system as tracks on my GPS and post the info as a .KML file so it can be overlaid on Google Earth.
